Hi guys, I wish I would of found this forum earlier. It has a ton of resources and lots of educated people. I am looking for a trading position in Chicago. I was working at a prop firm for about 2 years trading options. It is time to branch out a learn from a more established firm. The firm I was at consisted of about 6 people all angry and very private about trading. It was not a learning environment and I'm looking to further my career. I would be up for just about any position as long as it has potential to grow. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.
